Charlotte Rae, one of the most famous faces in the entertainment industry, recently passed away and those who knew her couldn't help but pay tribute to the actress.


Rae drew her last breath on Sunday, August 5, 2018, at her home in Los Angeles. She was best known for playing the role of the wise and lovable Mrs. Garret on The Facts of Life.

Upon learning of Rae's death, several people, including Kim Fields, who portrayed Dorothy 'Tootie' Ramsey on the sitcom, took to social media to remember the sweet women they loved and cared for.

While Fields went on to say that her heart felt heavy after Rae's departure, Mindy Cohn, the famous Natalie Green from Facts of Life, wrote Rae a sweet tribute on an Instagram post.

"She was my champion, a teacher, a proud example of the tenacity and perseverance needed to live as a creative, along with your talent and gifts. I love you, Char."

Cohn described Rae as an 'incredible force of a woman,' and took the opportunity to send her son, Larry Strauss, as well as the rest of the family, the 'happiest of homecomings.'


Comedian Larry Wilmore also paid tribute to the late 92-year-old by posting an episode of The Facts of Life, which, according to him, was his first television gig.

Kathy Griffin and Gilbert Gottfried posted the same photo of Rae in her memory, while Audra McDonald opted to remember everything that made the actress special.


The Broadway star wrote that Rae was a 'sweet, funny, wise, lovely and brilliant,' woman and that she would be missed

92-year-old Rae revealed that she had been diagnosed with bone cancer in 2017, just seven years after she was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, from which she was able to recover after six months of chemotherapy.

According to Entertainment Weekly, Rae wanted people to celebrate every day, 'to savor the day' and be good to themselves and to others. That was the late actress' way of life - kindness and love.
